Portrait of a thistle

Portrait of a thistle, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

I hope you're not tired of my photography by now. I've not had time to be in the shop much since the AAW symposium. I've actually turned a small bowl and a lidded vessel, but I've not done the follow-up work on surface enhancement. I probably won't get time for that until after the Dublin Irish Festival (first weekend of August).

So, this is a recent photo of a thistle that I processed in black and white using Silver Efex Pro. The color version is lovely, but the black and white portrait brings out detail that would be lost in color. I really like the dramatic presentation of the flower in this setting.

What do you think?
